Fall Fun Run BIG Giveaway

Hey Running Readers! Have we got a fabulous giveaway for you?! To help celebrate our 2012 Fall Fun Run event, we’re happy to have our Eat Blog Run sponsors here today with some really amazing prizes.

If you haven’t signed up your fall fun run yet, do it now (you’ll get an extra entry in the giveaway too!).

Let me tell you a little about what’s in store:

1. First up is a pair of brand new shiny running shoes from New Balance. The 860v3 shoe is what you can win and is scheduled to come out just in time for the NYC Marathon, which is still on course for this weekend. These shoes have blown rubber outsoles that are extremely flexible, light weight, and help provide cushioning. You will want to get out running all winter long.

2. Next we have SPIbelt, the makers of running belts. Remember my hot mama fanny pack post?! I LOVE my SPIbelt and I’m so happy to give one away to one of our readers: the original SPIbelt, helping you carry everything you own inside your belt… well almost everything ;)

3. We also have a fun prize pack from Luna Bar. I first learned about Luna Bar from our first Eat Blog Run relay back in 2010. They helped fuel me for my runs, and they are delicious to boot! One winner will receive 50 bars of your choice plus a Luna Bar tote bag, tin full of bars, and a water bottle. You’ll be ready for your next run with this fabulous prize pack.

4. And last but not least is our fabulous friends of Team Sparkle. We love these ladies, especially the costumes they come up with as they run, adorned in one of their sparkle skirts too. These skirts can be seen for miles (well almost) and give off that running flare you need for a boost of energy. Today they are giving away one of their sparkling skirts, you pick the color. They want YOU to sparkle too!!

So comment to enter, sign up your fall run for a second entry, and then go hit the road running! Happy Fall!
